Week 9: vs Washington Redskins

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Teddy Bridgewater notched his second win of the season for Minnesota vs. the hapless Buccaneers, cutting his interceptions to zero in that game while throwing 24/42 for 241 yards, one TD and one rush for three yards. Cordarrelle Patterson led the Vikings in receiving (12 for 6/86/0 receiving), but ended the day in a walking boot with a supposedly 'minor' foot injury - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News as we get closer to the weekend to see if Patterson can consistently practice this week. Tight end Chase Ford posted six targets for 6/61/0 receiving, while Greg Jennings handled the TD for Bridgewater with six targets for 3/38/1 receiving. It was a positive development for Bridgewater and the Vikings. The Washington pass D is ranked seventh in the NFL avearaging 219.2 net passing yards given up per game, but they bleed six-point plays this year with 17 passing scores allowed vs. only three interceptions (tied for next-to-last in the NFL) and 21 sacks (tied-ninth) generated. Last week Tony Romo and company posted 21/34 for 224 net yards, two TDs and zero interceptions, with five sacks taken for -54 yards; Charlie Whitehurst threw 17/26 for 160 net yards, two TDs and one interception at Washington two games back, with one sack taken for zero yards. Bridgewater and company have a neutral matchup at home this week - we'll see if Bridgewater can get rid of the football quickly in the face of Washington's blitzing D.
